THE PIG PAPER #=/<£ ©1985 PIG PRODUCTIONS ,70 Cotton Drive,Mississauga, Ontario, Canada L5G 1Z9 cMmar* Yessiree folks: THE DELETE ZONE, deleted since early 1980, is Back! Since last we spoke, I have entered the VCR Age and have man- aged to acquire lots of stuff like 10/16ths of the entire GODZILLA cycle and around a third of the Supermarionation output of England's famed Gerry and Sylvia Anderson's 1966-70 production period, I also maintain a healthy exchange of wrestling shows off local TV with friends far away. For my personal video Hits And Misses as we wrap up the first half of the Eighties, on the "+" side.., HITCH-HIKER'S GUIDE TO THE GALAXY, the Great ALL-NIGHT SHOW with Charles the Security person, "V", HILL STREET BLUES, NEWHART, revivals of oldsters like OUTER LIMITS, THE PROFESSIONALS, NEW AVENGERS, RAT PATROL, GREEN HORNET ...but Where-0-Where have you local programmers hid THE MONKEES? Other visual hits include LIQUID SKY, ERASERHEAD, the MAD MAX films and SUPERMAN TOO, BLADE RUNNER, ELEPHANT PARTS, HUNGER, THIS IS SPINAL TAP and Several juicy X- rated features I had to go to Montreal these past two summers to see. Misses? Most of the whole slew of Dead Teenager Parts movies which we as a nation must take partial blame for. And anything with Chuck Norris. STAY TUNED... |@MAT lAAN/A U2 "THE UNFORGETTABLE FIRE ,f Sounds like Led Zeppelin. HUSKER DU "ZEN ARCADE" All the backwards guitar and piano on Side 3 makes this LP sound like PURPLE RAIN. Not as great as METAL CIRCUS, but just fine. TOTEN HQSEN "OPEL GANG" Brilliant LP by the best punk group in the world right now, and they never get a mention in the trendy shitrags. RAMONES "TOO TOUGH TO DIE" The inventors of punk rock (70s style) are back with their best LP since END OF THE CENTURY. It's nowhere near as contrived as the last two, and has plenty of references to earlier songs (ie: compare "Endless Vacation" to "Beat On The Brat"). They're not pioneers anymore, but they are a modern high class act. I hope they release as many LPs as The Kinks and Lou Reed, with whom they share an adult dignity matched by nobody else in the world of pop music. C/O LIVING EYE PRODUCTIONS P.O. BOX 12956 ROCHESTER.

If Mondale had ? we been elected, we'd have a "President" again: very dull stuff. With Reagan re-elected, we'll have four more years of the Wizard of Oz. THAT'S why I want Reagan, after much careful thought. For four years the White House has been the Emerald City, attract- ing the proverbial scarecrows and tin-men from across the country, who set out on quixotic and insane quests to get to Washington to "talk to him" or to "give him advice" or to "give him a present"... or to blow his fucking head off. These demented modern-day Don Quixotes set out thousands of miles away in broken-down cars, ending up in front of the White House gates (and quickly arrested). Something com- pletely different. We've been pummelled and brutalized by images and pictures of him and Nancy, the crowned Queen of Unreality. One day a beautiful Hollywood starlet; the next day, from a slightly different angle, a 100-year-old bitch. How many insane people know Reagan? Raise your hands! Take a head count! ALL of them know Reagan. They mutter his name from the deep- est of lively lunatic slumbers. And Nancy? Gentle consolation for pri- soners in every jail and mad-house. THAT'S why we elected him. After another four years things '11 NEVER be the same. We don't want a President - we want the Wizard of Oz! Seriously - things would 've been much duller with Mondale (not that I think he had much of a chance anyway). In the last few years, TEN times more people have been arrested trying to crash the White House gates. Reagan touches a strange nerve in us. If Mondale had won, there 'd be no use in ANY of us going down to Washington to hang out at the gates. It's impossible to completely define the effect Reagan's had on us - but it sure hasn't been dull. Don't you think in Canada this elec- tion has attracted more attention than ANY of the others? The dullest election was Carter vs. Ford. With THIS one, there was the element of Raw Fear. /&Nb IN A WPKISE*/*oV£7croH/WY 0>lh£ AM ELVIS PRESLEY l^fSf^SoUlmt PART ONE z£§. **Steve interviewed at work, Summer 1982** KEY: f£ J^* * S = Steve Wynn (Guitar, vocals and characatures) ZL*im~m "J G = Gary Pig (He drew all the Z's) £d£ *»* M = Mb (No-one to you) ZZZ2 2T2LlZ1Z»4 M: ^^t's this on the radio?
